About the Society

The LowExNet has been founded as a result of the work of the ECBCS Annex 37: "Low Exergy Systems for Heating and Cooling in Buildings", an collaboration activity within the general framework of the IEA (International Energy Agency). During an expert meeting in Kassel, Germany in September 2003, the decision was made to form a network on the issues of new ways for energy systems in buildings and to continue the work of the ECBCS Annex 37, which is to seek various low exergy system solutions.

The ECBCS Annex 37 work was started in the beginning of 2000 and completed by the end of 2003. The main eight countries which participated in the project were: Canada, Finland, France, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. Denmark, Germany and Poland were also involved in the project and there was some collaboration with Slovenia and Greece. Further information on the ECBCS Annex 37 itself can be found on its homepage.
